Dear Fools,

I am thinking of buying an ETF gold bullion security (IAU) as a hedge against inflation. Before I do, however, I need to know if gold is or is not a good hedge against inflation (some say it is, and some say it is not). Can someone answer this question for me, including why or why not?

Thanks,

sulpolitix
